Southern California & Orange
County Restaurant Wedding Ceremony & Marriage Vows - Civil,
Non-Religious Or Religious Ceremonies
couples requiring a Minister, Clergy, Justice of the Peace,
Priest, Rabbi, Judge or other marriage officiator to preside
over their restaurant marriage ceremony
you already might know, planning a restaurant wedding
and marriage ceremony can be the best way to simplify
the whole wedding planning experience. Especially,
since the entire wedding celebration is located at
the same location.
Southern California & Orange County restaurant
marriage ceremony can be more easily planned with
the help of a trained wedding officiator/clergy/minister/priest/rabbi/justice
of the peace or other civil wedding celebrant. One
knowledgeable and experienced in both planning and
presiding over restaurant marriage ceremonies.
restaurant wedding venue usually does not include
the officiator in their wedding package. If they do,
check their recommendation closely and compare with
The Clergy Network’s services. A location’s
referral can be based upon “kick-back”
arrangements between officiator and location coordinator.
Also, a specific officiator may be recommended, purely
due to their advertising in the restaurant’s
wedding brochure. In some cases, a restaurant event
coordinator, in an attempt to be helpful, places unskilled
officiators on their preferred list. A coordinator
is not trained in what to look for in a wedding officiator
– as to skill, training, peer review, credentialing,
etc. Contact TCN for details on proper credentialing,
training, peer review, and screening of a wedding
officiator/minister/clergy/justice of the peace, etc.
officiator/clergy/minister/priest/rabbi or civil officiator,
who regularly performs wedding ceremonies at local
Southern California wedding venues, knows the rules.
Bringing in a career wedding officiator, who keeps
in touch with Orange County wedding location coordinators,
can be helpful logistically and practically.
What Kind Of Wedding Officiant/Clergy/Minister
Or Civil Officiator Can Provide Restaurant Marriage
Ceremony Know How?
of the following:
certain that your prospective wedding officiator
is degreed in his/her field. Ruling out those without
long- time officiating experience, part-timers,
beginners, internet or mail-order ordained, the
questionable or those officiating just for fun,
is an important start. A screened, career, professional
officiator is a minimum standard from which to start.
certain that your prospective wedding officiator
can demonstrate a knowledge of restaurant wedding
ceremony pro’s and con’s. Helping you
to factor in a number of variables - sound system
or lighting requirements, restaurant policy, ceremony
limitations due to physical location and the like.
Please Note: Numerous other simultaneous events
and fluid guest traffic at/near your ceremony location
should be addressed in discussion.
the officiator’s physical qualities in the
light of the restaurant environment - inarticulate
or soft speaking voice, untidy appearance, confident,
friendly, or overall state of health
the officiator’s knowledge of your specific
restaurant marriage ceremony location. For example,
the officiator’s actual experiences at your
chosen restaurant wedding venue… i.e. their
opinion on the wedding venue’s sound system,
the location’s wedding coordinator, the ceremony
area, caterer, etc.
based with a reputable Orange County officiators
group. A screened, career officiator with professional
local wedding affiliations.
a working experience with wedding locations in Orange
County - Los Angeles County – Riverside County
– San Bernardino County or San Diego County
certain that your pre-selected marriage officiator
will be the one presiding over your wedding ceremony.
You do not want to meet with one wedding officiant/minister/clergy
only to have another one show up on the wedding
day. One that has not had significant restaurant
wedding ceremony experience.
certain that your primary officiant/minister/clergy/justice
of the peace can supply guaranteed emergency “back-up”,
in the event of their illness. This “back-up”
should agree to the terms arranged with your primary
officiant. The “back-up” should perform
the wedding ceremony content already agreed upon.
certain that the officiant/minister/clergy/priest/rabbi/justice
of the peace will add the warmth and personality
to your ceremony, complimentary to the restaurant
certain that the marriage officiant will consult
with the wedding professionals directly related
to your wedding ceremony & transition to the
wedding reception festivities. The restaurant wedding
reception caterer, event planner or banquet coordinator,
photographer, videographer, D.J., musicians, etc,
are to be included in this list.
restaurant wedding ceremony should not focus on
the limitations associated with the setting, but
rather emphasize the locations advantages.
